LG's latest Android tablet

LG is showing off a new Android tablet, with specs you wouldn't ever expect to see in an Android tablet. The LG TabBook 11 runs Android, but features a sliding keyboard and laptop internals — an Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD for internal storage. The addition of two full-size USB 3.0 ports and HDMI as well as an 11.6-inch IPS display out round out the specifications. All this is running Android 4.2.2, and LG says the experience should be "optimal."

We're not sure why anyone would need this sort of hardware to run Android, but for those that do, LG may just have what you're looking for — though we have a feeling we won't be seeing this one in the west anytime soon.

LG TabBook 11 brings together Intel, a keyboard, and Android in unholy matrimony


Why 4.2.2 though? I work here in Chandler AZ at Intel and for the life of me can never understand why we keep building these packages for customers that are running out dated android builds. Intel is so far behind now that we dont have much hope at catching up in the mobile space if we dont release things that are cutting edge and run the absolute latest Android releases.

Real Racing 3, Wild Blood, Nova 3, Modern Combat 4&5, Horn, Glu's Dragon Slayer and many more.

Well considering there are no real systems out there that have this type of hardware, why would someone write software for it? I see it as a supply and demand type of thing. If there is hardware out, then maybe someone will actually write software that can utilize it. Until there is hardware, why would someone write it?

By that logic, name one road around where you live that would take advantage of a 691 horsepower Aventador. It's just nice to have that power at your disposal, it'll be smoother in overall use, and it will come into play occasionally.

I echo others when I ask why 4.2.2?

I understand development cycles and how maybe the device was conceived around 4.2.2 but with such high end specs if I were the product manger for this device I would have the software group update the device to 4.4 if not 4.4.4 before launch.
